Another Cal Expo Run
We knew at this time that the end was near for the Cal Expo Amphitheater. So the chance to do 3 more days with the Dead could not be passed up. For all the 1993 shows I did these rank well up there. With a Bertha opener the dancing began. There was also a Loose Lucy and a Lazy River Road -smiles all around. The rest of the run was just fun and frivolity all around. Just look at the set lists. Cal Expo was a great venue for the Dead and it did close up the next year with one more appearance by the boys.

I did a 13 show run this tour or something close to that. I thought GD were on point this year. Cal Expo was one of the coolest places to see them. Love the beer garden. Went there the next year too for the closing of the venue. Great memories.

a regretful incident
I recall this show.. it was a bit of a drag on a personal level. Our group were out in the concourse near the snacks vending area when the band broke into GDTRFB.. and being one of my favorite songs at the time.. I started hotfooting it towards the tunnel into the field... I think I was kinda skipping/running as I went through a crowd of spinners... We all were totally in the vibe..successfully dodged my way through them with a Gene Kelly grace...until, seeing the open space beyond, I got to the last spinner in the group.
I saw this poor guy twist toward the right, so I went left, but he did a double pivot and came around flatfooted to the left, and I crashed into him full force.. He was 5'10" 185# at the max.. I'm 6'6" 270# accelerating into a full run.. I impacted him like a linebacker catching a QB straight up.. just blew him out of his birkenstocks.
I stopped and helped him to his feet, apologizing profusely, but I could tell by the look in his still rattling eyeballs, that I'd ruined his night.. He couldn't stand and was sitting back down, when I, with one last "sorry" went back to my headlong plunge toward the now bouncing & crowded field. I've always felt really bad about that.. it was a total accident, but still.
Life on the Tour can be hazardous.
Great recording of a standard fare '93 Spring show. Cal Expo was my favorite of all places to see the band.. To me Shoreline is like home, but Cal Expo was like the "back 40".. the private intimate place, just for the few of us. Which, I guess is something, considering I've always lived in So Cal.

Excellent start to a great three show run!
Solid Bertha and Jerry plays a wah on Greatest Story rather than the mutron (but is low in the mix). Eyes is stellar and simply goes on and on and on. Second set in general is above average (esp. pre drums)...
